According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Many communities adjust the fluoride concentration in the water supply to a level known to reduce tooth decay and promote good oral health (often called the optimal level). This practice is known as community water fluoridation and reaches all people who drink that water. If you want to learn more about fluoride see us at a friendly place for kids near me.

In the United States, the current recommendations are for local authorities to adjust the local water supply to a level of 0.7 milligrams per liter. Fluoride additives are used to bring the level to the optimum level proven to help prevent caries while minimizing the risk of fluorosis. Dental fluorosis is defined as mottling of teeth caused by excessive intake of fluoride compounds.

Systematic fluoride can be delivered through drops, tablets, and community public water supplies. Dental providers must take into consideration the patient’s risk level of developing caries, dental status, compliance, and patient preference when using fluoride treatments in office and when making recommendations for home use. if you would like to join our ToothTown Family and brighten your child's smile, you can give us a call at (561)333-4568 or visit our website at www.mytoothtown.com to schedule your appointment.

At- home fluoride includes toothpaste/dentifrice, gels, and rinses available as over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription products. Patients with recession, exposed roots, fixed orthodontics, and xerostomia among other conditions may benefit from use of these products. Patients should avoid rinsing, eating, or drinking for 30 minutes following their application. By googling kid’s dentist near me or in West Palm Beach pediatric dentist you can find out more information about prescription fluoride at-home use.

Prescription rinses containing approximately 900 ppm sodium fluoride can be used in children ages 6 and older. This product is often used in school-based fluoride rinse programs. Children rinse once weekly at school under the supervision of a school nurse or Dental Hygienist.

Children who get cavities and no dentist visit before school could cause major problems for your child starting their academic school year. When a child has a cavity or even a toothache it causes them to have lack of sleep because of the tooth pain also not being able to focus in school because the lack of rest and also could start an issue with their social life with other kids. As a parent you should keep up with your child dentist visits especially starting a new school year. These are couple guidelines that will help you get prepared:

  • Regular dental examinations to diagnose and treat or prevent dental problems. Parents and teachers may not realize there's a dental problem, so regular checkups are important. Your dentist may suggest fluoride treatments or sealants to prevent decay and can diagnose and treat dental problems to save your child pain and lost school time.
  • Regular brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing. Head for the dental care aisle when you're out shopping for notebooks, binders and pencils. If parents buy several toothbrushes they could have their child change to a new one every three months or so, or after an illness. If it's hard to remember when to change a brush, you could try to change it every time report cards come out. Ask your dentist for a recommendation on how often to change toothbrushes.
  • Eating healthy lunches and snacks. Include portable healthy lunch items and snacks in your child's sack lunch, including grains, milk, cheese, raw vegetables, yogurt or fruit. If your child eats in the school cafeteria, review healthy, balanced food choices with him before the first day of school. Cut back on sugary foods and soft drinks.
  • Wearing a properly fitted mouth guard while participating in organized sports, PE classes or playground activities.

1.Get a Checkup

Your child should see a Pediatric dentist by his or her first birthday. Early preventive care saves you money in the long run.

2.Teach Good Habits

Brushing is crucial from the get- go before your baby has teeth, you can gently brush his/ her gums use water on a baby toothbrush, or clean them with a soft washcloth.

3.Avoid “Baby Bottle Decay” Early Childhood Caries

Don’t put your infant or older child down for a nap with a bottle of juice, formula, or milk. Sugary liquids cling to his teeth, feeding bacteria that can cause tooth decay. If you must give your child a bottle to take to bed, make sure it contains only water.

4.Cut Back on Juice

Many parents think juice is a healthy daylong choice for a drink, but it can lead to tooth decay. Limit your child to no more than 4 ounces a day of 100% fruit juice. Only give sugary drinks and foods at mealtimes, and use juice as a treat.

5.Control the Sippy Cup

A sippy cup can help kids move from a bottle to a glass, but don't let him drink from it all day long. Using it too much can lead to decay on the back of the front teeth if the drinks are sugary.

The Many Hazards of a Pacifier

  • Ear problems. According to one study, children who use pacifiers are almost twice as likely to get multiple ear infections as children who don’t.
  • Tooth troubles. Some parents wonder if a pacifier will affect their kid’s pearly whites. Just make sure your baby doesn't use them long term. The Academy of Pediatric Dentistry says to stop giving your child the pacifier before age 2. Any problems with growing teeth usually self-correct within 6 months of stopping pacifier use.
  • Sugary Liquids. Many sugary liquids can also cause for your child’s teeth to decay. Never dip a pacifier in honey or other sugary liquids.
  • Breast Feeding. Breastfeeding is a natural process, but it may take a while for you or your baby to get the hang of it. If you nurse your infant, hold off on the pacifier for the first few weeks -- that gives time for your milk to come in, and for both of you to get in a good nursing pattern. That way, your baby won't start to prefer pacifiers over the nipple. After that, studies show no link between pacifier use and breastfeeding troubles.

(If you see your child replacing the pacifier by the thumb then it will be better to let the child keep the pacifier)
